Bust of the late Duke of Wellington

By E.W. Wyon

Source: The Illustrated London News, May 7, 1853, p. 357

This fine bust has been beautifully executed in parian by Messrs. Josiah Wedgewood and Sons, Etruria, Staffordshire. In this model it has been the sculptor's object to represent the Great Duke somewhat past the time of the battle of Waterloo, but before age had depressed his manly figure. Hence the difference between this and many of the representations lately published. The likeness in Mr. Wyon's bust is admirable ; and it is altogether a superior work of art.
